This course is full of benefit. Content of the course is very accurate. Teacher who was teaching was also good. I would suggest to all the beginner to learn this topic who are interested in IoT field.
good course :)\n\nplease review my assignment to complete my course :(\n\nhttps://www.coursera.org/learn/iot/peer/qYW91/module-1-peer-review-identify-and-analyze-a-device/review/VBUuMpl_EeeuPhL2ByDlUA
I am sorry to say but my name on the certificate is mistaken. Please can anyone help me with that.

Good course. Helps learners learn about the IoT devices in the easiest way.
By Henry W•
ineffective and boring. quantity is put over quantity as videos and readings can be skipped, and most information in them isn't questioned in quiz.

Too many peer review questions

I took this one second. Really liked it. Thank you Mr. Harris. However, about the whole specialization in general and Coursera in general.
1.) Forums would be really useful on this, maybe it is hard to moderate I understand. Maybe you could suggest some online discussion spaces that you use
2.) I am in the project capstone final course now and came back here to see the microcontrollers I had researched in course #1.. but can't get to my homework. I lost that work which I thought I would be able to look back on. To help with this, if I guess Coursera does not persist your homework, the courses which have textbox inputs should be maybe switched to attaching documents, so the user will tend to have saved the document on their computer.
Thank you I have and am learning a lot. My project will really help me around the house too. This was a great series and worthy of the money I paid to support it the past few months. Keep up the good work. P.S. Ian G. Harris is popular

A very basic introduction to IoT and Embedded Systems. Recordings are high quality, speaker is fluent and knowledgeable. Assignments are easy for the most part. Some minimal technical knowledge is expected. You will hear terms that you may need to look up online. Thankfully this domain is vastly documented and there are plenty of forums with enthusiasts online. I did notice some peer submitted assignments were plagiarized which renders this certificate worthless to HR. So, take this course for learning or entertaining reasons, not for the certificate alone because in the end, it's not the the certificate that will matter when you get hired or when you ask for the promotion.

This is by far the best course I have taken on Coursera, or any other open online course. In fact, I would rate it as a top five courses ever including my undergraduate and graduate education at preeminent US universities. Professor Harris does an excellent job of giving the learner a survey of fundamental computing, IoT and networking concepts. While somewhat technical, the course is far from boring and his style/approach make it easy for even non-technical learners to follow the coursework. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, learned a lot and look forward to continuing the experience in the full Specialization.

This course is really best for those students who are starting their journey in learning IoT. This course provides best content from start to end providing video lectures in which every concept is taught in details and in easy language. Along with quiz the assignment submission really helps a lot to learn more about IoT. By reviewing the peer's assignment one can learn a lot and think out of the box. I am thankful to Coursera and Prof. Ian Harris and his team from University of California-Irvine for offering this course. I hope your course team will definitely come up with such interesting courses in near future.

Good introduction. Instructor well organized, concise. The only improvement would be to have more power points such that I wouldn't have to do so much snipping and pasting. The ppts you use are very good, just add more. Many of us will use excel and snipping tools to aid in retaining this class. This method is better than saving the mp4's because we can quickly scan excel pages.
I would add more technical info. The wireshark was cool but expand on it more.
Thank you for your time Dr. Harris and all you others who put this together.

An great introductory course for those looking to get started into IOT ,great if you're looking for breadth rather than depth , which I feel is essential because of nature of IoT as a domain requires one to be familiar with multiple fields like embedded systems , types of programming languages ,networking , micro-controllers etc simultaneously . Prof. Harris explains complex things in really simple manner without overwhelming the learner which I think is necessary for a beginner to retain interest in exploring further .
By Janna H•
This information was new to me. With a lot of work to watch and rewatch the lectures, I learned A LOT. I had to redo the homework for two separate weeks because I have no background in this field. I found it helpful to grade many more than the required homework assignment because then I learned from my other classmates. It was a challenging class but also interesting. I'm very excited to take the next class in the specialization, Aruduino and C Programming.

Well explained and structured course as an intro to the Internet of the Thing, the professor is very clear in his explanations and the tours and videos exploring real life instruments he uses in his laboratory helps you to keep the theory he teaches in connection to the practice. Recommended for anyone wanting to have an idea about the domain. Not only technically speaking but also as a review of the implications of technologies in daily life.

Great course for newcomers in this IoT world. Professor Harris transmit information in such an intuitive and clear way, with day-to-day examples and witty analogies, so a very specific and relatively complex subject turns very understandable. This course will provide you the very basics of IoT but is design to guarantee that you will acquire consistent foundations in this subject to proceed to further courses with more specific applications
By Muniah M•
The best thing about this course is absolutely the assignments at the end of each week. They help the student tremendously in understanding the videos and relate the videos to the real world and real applications. Another amazing thing about it is how it introduces the IOT subject from scratch but eventually, you feel that you learnt a lot even though you still in the introductory course.
By Dr A C S•
This course is very fundamental information about IOT and basic of embedded systems.
Every one can easily got clear idea about the basic microcontroller and its application of IOT,also how to connect with real world and handled the remotly access the information and contolled any type of devices. Using interfacing of tool analyse the entire any type of networks connected with your systems.

It is a really cool course, and i'm starting to really enjoy it, especially because of the explanations brought by the professor and also the difficulty on the quizzes wich doesn't show where you were wrong. wich means you'll review almost everything if you are unsure about your answers. thank you for giving us this great opportunity !

Professor Ian Harris has made me love this subject. Nice way of teaching and keeping student's interests up through out the course, especially in the peer graded assignments we have to select objects and analyze them of our own, which is an extra-ordinary way of learning and keeping our interest on. Thanks for this great course!

This course helped me understand a lot, not just about IoT devices, but also how the internet functions and the embedded systems. As an electrotechnical and computer engineering student, the information provided in this course was very helpful to understand many things relevant to my area. Now I have a basic understanding of IoT, embedded systems, and internet protocols. Great course for beginners.
By Jim M•
Very concise, highly organized, and totally up-to-date and relevant. Dr. Harris' knowledge and style/delivery made this course completely enjoyable. I am very happy with all that I learned. Big props to Dr. Ian Harris!
I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to delve into the world of IoT and embedded systems. I am excited to begin the next course in the 6 class specialization.

I am graduating in Electronics and Communication Engineering.This course helped me a lot to understand what is Internet of Things and Embedded systems. This course is not only theoretical but also practical.The quizzes and assignments helped to understand the course even more better. And our professor Ian Harris sir teaching is so good that made to listen his classes without bore.
By Rajat S•
The course was filled with loads of interesting information which was pretty effectively delivered by Professor Ian Harris in the most convincing way I have ever seen.All the assignments and quizzes were prepared in such a way that learner cannot copy those from the internet and has to thoroughly study each and every topic in the course multiple times.No doubt he is at the top.

This course sets a great learning path for beginners, and if you also opt to complete the entire specialization, I can surely say that it will do you a whole lot of good. This course essentially adopts a holistic approach to introduce students to the awesome world of IoT, and I would definitely recommend this to people who want to start working with development boards.
